Enid Symphony’s coming season

Posted on: June 7, 2010

In Friday’s (6/4) Enid News and Eagle (Oklahoma), Robert Barron writes, “Enid Symphony Orchestra will start the season with a little jazz this year as the Brubeck Brothers come to Enid Symphony Center. Brothers Chris and Danny are the sons of jazz great Dave Brubeck. They will bring their quartet to Enid Oct. 2-3. While in town they also will go to Enid High School to work with students on a master’s jazz class. Prior to the opening of the subscription season ESO will perform during the annual Fourth of July celebration at Meadowlake Park. This year’s performance is titled ‘Chips and Salsa,’ and executive director Doug Newell said it is a ‘salsa mix’ of music. … Newell said the symphony likes to focus on internationally known artists and those with Oklahoma and Enid connections. In addition, Newell has been invited to attend the League of American Orchestras in Atlanta, June 17. Newell will be a peer presenter about the symphony center, one of the few in the United States that owns its own concert hall, along with Advance Food Co. Newell will discuss how nonprofits can work with businesses.”
